Mars Our Destination

Via Sheila Lennon (link at sidebar under "Journalists"), lots of good links and advice about photographing Mars tonight and tomorrow morning, when it will be at its closest to the Earth in 60,000 years. Robin snapped a few pictures of the moon and Mars during the blackout (here's one) but at 1:30 AM he wasn't about to set up the tripod for a longer exposure, so I'm thrilled that the Hubble site is going to have all those nice high-res files tomorrow.
